    Dear Hariprasad,

    Namaste. The award is a well-deserved honour to Sri Bannanje Govindacharya. I recently listened to his discourse series on ‘Krishnana Kathe’ in Kannadaaudio.com. ‘Maha mahiLe Draupadi’ is also a nice one. His other discourse series are also interesting. It was a real surprise to me when I came to know that Sri Bannanje had scripted the dialogues for the G.V.Iyer movie on ‘Sri Shankaracharya’. I had seen the film long ago when it was first released. But this piece of info. is new to me.

    Thanks for your tributes to such a great scholar.

    Regards,
